Beauty combat well covered.
Some of us may remember the fun and colourful Maison Kitsuné x Shu Uemura Christmas holidays collection in 2015. Along with the gorgeous, cartoon illustrated packaging, it was the perfect gift for the make-up obsessed. So it is safe to say that when news broke of another collaboration, the excitement hovering in the air was palpable.
For those unfamiliar with Maison Kitsuné, they’re all about reinventing classics. It was created by Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki in 2002 to showcase their contemporary vision of fashion influenced by a Paris-meets-Tokyo aesthetic. The elegance of France with the simplicity of modern Japan came together to a perfect balance between comfort and minimalism, a proposition that resonated with many. Maison Kitsuné has expanded since and now directly owns and operates stores in 16 locations across Paris, New York City, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Hong Kong and Honolulu.
This summer, they’re back, bolder than ever with #mycamostyle. The French lifestyle brand and Japanese beauty company Shu Uemura have come together to fashion a playful capsule collection inspired by the classic camouflage trend, with a twist. The iconic “Camo Fox” print that Maison Kitsuné (kitsune means fox in Japanese) is known for is heavily featured on the packaging, along with lipstick marks and Mt. Fuji, a nod to the history of the brands.
